Greetings from the CYCC Network!! 

Our Scientific Director, Dr. Michael Ungar in partnership with Dalhousie’s Faculty of Health Professions and the CYCC Network are excited to present a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course).

Sharing Promising Practices: Supporting Youth Mental Health & Wellbeing

The open access course will explore seven knowledge syntheses identifying practices most likely to positively influence young people’s lives. With content specifically targeted to individuals and organizations working with vulnerable youth, the course will provide participants with concrete ideas for innovative programming, changes to policy, and the tools to assess the impact of the work they do.

Classes start April 20th
